Exodus 2:22 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

22 She conceived and bore a son, whom he named Gershom;[a] for he said, “I am a stranger residing in a foreign land.”

Footnotes:

  1. 2:22 Gershom: the name is explained unscientifically as if it came from the Hebrew word ger, “sojourner, resident alien,” and the Hebrew word sham, “there.” Stranger residing: Hebrew ger, one who seeks and finds shelter and a home away from his or her own people or land.
